300! I finally hit my 300th bowl of ramen. To celebrate, I went to the Osaka branch of one of the first good ramen shops I had ever been to in Japan. Ganko is a shio shop that can be found wherever you find a black storefront with a single bone in front.

Ōsaka-fu, Ōsaka-shi, Chūō-ku, Nanbasennichimae, 10−13

The Bowl
Man, what a salty broth. It was good, especially with the bits of fried onion in there, but it was hard to take as I reached the end. The noodles were thin and slurpable, but were very salty as well. The egg and chashu were both OK, and the menma were very light.


Would I Go Again?
I might check out a branch in Tokyo when I'm back there, but I don't need to try it again in Osaka.


Should You Go?
Nah, there are better shio bowls in Minami.
